Twitter removed one of Florida Surgeon General Joseph Ladapo’s tweets from the social networking site. He shared a study on the Covid mRNA vaccine where he stated that an 84% increase in heart-related deaths was found for men 18-39 years old.
The social network said, without providing any further explanation, that Dr. Ladapo's message "violated Twitter rules."
After several social media users condemned Twitter's interference in an official study, the company backtracked and this Sunday reposted the tweet with the link to the Florida surgeon general's report, as verified by Voz Media:
Today, we released an analysis on COVID-19 mRNA vaccines the public needs to be aware of. This analysis showed an increased risk of cardiac-related death among men 18-39. FL will not be silent on the truth.

The study: "Men aged 18 to 39 years should not receive COVID-19 mRNA vaccines”
The guide published by the Florida medical authorities, dated last Friday, states that the analyses found that there is an 84% increase in the relative instance of cardiac-related death among males 18-39 years old within 28 days of receiving the mRNA vaccination. The study adds that:
With a high level of global immunity to COVID-19, the benefit of vaccination is likely outweighed by this abnormally high risk of cardiac-related death among men in this age group.
Florida health officials add that "non-mRNA vaccines were not found to have these increased risks."
For all these reasons, he recommends that males aged 18 to 39 not receive mRNA COVID-19 vaccines. He added that people with preexisting cardiac conditions, such as myocarditis and pericarditis, should take particular caution when making this decision.
“Studying the safety and efficacy of any medications, including vaccines, is an important component of public health," said Dr. Joseph Ladapo.
Far less attention has been paid to safety and the concerns of many individuals have been dismissed – these are important findings that should be communicated to Floridians.
